Congress Should Defend Due Process, Not Tear It Down

FreedomWorks today strongly criticized a reported proposal to prohibit individuals suspected of, though not prosecuted for, ties to terrorism from legally purchasing a firearm. The watch list has flaws and has also been used wrongly to prevent innocent Americans from flying, including the late Sen. Ted Kennedy (D-Mass.) and Fox News commentator Stephen Hayes. No constitutional right, including the right to bear arms, should be taken away on a hunch. Due process is required.

Legislation in Virginia Protects Property Owners from Government Overreach

In 2012, Mandrel Stuart was stopped by Fairfax County police and detained without charges because his SUV had tinted windows. Not only was he handcuffed, but he was stripped of $17,550 in cash. Mr. Stuart intended to use that cash for equipment and supplies for his barbecue restaurant in Staunton, Virginia. After hiring a lawyer, a jury determined in 2013 that he was entitled to his money. However, he lost his restaurant in the process due to the financial stress of the circumstances.

Lawsuit seeks to protect innocent property owners from Arizona's unconstitutional forfeiture laws

Arizona's civil asset forfeiture laws lack any real protections for law-abiding citizens and their property. In direct contradiction with the Fifth and Fourteenth Amendments, which guarantee the right of due process, the property owner, who may never be charged with a crime, bears the burden to prove that his property is innocent before he can get it back. That is why the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) has filed a lawsuit that challenges the constitutionality of Arizona's forfeiture laws.
